Real Estate Professionals judge the strength of a real estate market based upon the Months of Supply in the area. This number tells you how many months it would take for all the current homes for sale on the market to sell, based upon the rate of sales in the past. A Months of Supply of 5 months is considered average - buyers and sellers are about equal in the area and homes are being bought at about the same rate that they are being put on the market. A Months of Supply of less than 5 months is what real estate professionals often call a "seller's market." This means that there are more buyers than sellers in the area and homes are selling quicker than they are being put on the market. Typically, this increases prices. A Months of Supply of greater than 5 months is what real estate pro...

Ever since I was 10 years old and had to have a spinal tap, I’ve been terrified of needles.  Imagine how I felt almost 4 years ago, when I found out I had Type II Diabetes and would have to prick my finger several times a day.  I was horrified, devastated and anxious about it, that’s how I felt.  So I worked to get rid of my diabetes, and I’m happy to say it’s been gone for almost 2 years now.   But I still fear needles.   I also knew that I wanted to overcome that fear... For years I’ve thought of getting a tattoo, but the needle thing scared me so I didn’t do it.   Finally back in November of 2012, I said the heck with it!  I want a tattoo and if it means dealing with the needles I’ll be fine.   So I started researching different designs and ideas, then I asked friends to recommend a ...

In Linden, 211 homes sold in 2012 with sales in August and September representing 22% of the total sales. There is 11 months worth of inventory remaining in Linden which is much higher than most of Union County. At the current rate of sales, it will take nearly a year for the existing listings to sell.   House prices in Linden have fluctuated a bit during 2012 and ended 2012 in December 16% lower than in January. In part, this is due to the nearly 37% of active listings in Linden that are short sales with lender approval required.  The sale price/list price ratio can be one measure of buyer and seller confidence. A high ratio indicates that homes are selling near their list price and a low ratio indicates that homes are selling below their list price. In Linden, the sale price/list pric...

Linden, NJ, is a city of about 40,500 people in southeastern Union County.     Buyers looking to purchase a home in Union County still have plenty to choose from in Linden - there are 265 active listings as of September 1st, 2012, but the inventory is slowly dropping.             Summer activity was high with 23 homes sold in August, dropping off to a still robust 18 in September.             A comparison between the sold listings and the active listings can be used to calculate the absorption rate. The absorption rate is the data upon which real estate professionals identify a market as a "buyer's market" or a "seller's market." If the absorption rate is above 6 months, there are more homes than there are buyers and the market is said to be a buyer's market. If the absorption rate is b...

The details of these sales were analyzed to determine how the number of bathrooms and the number of bedrooms affected sales price.
